11:19 AM PT -- A sneaker war appears to be brewin' in the Ball household ... 'cause just hours after LaMelo officially revealed his MB.01s, LaVar announced his $900 Big Baller Brand lifestyle shoe.
Papa Ball posted a vid seemingly shading Melo's move to Puma on Tuesday ... saying "independency and ownership is everything" as he displays the new expensive kicks.
The BBB options cost WAY more than Melo's -- ranging from $695 to $895.
So, why so expensive?? BBB claims the shoes are made with full genuine Italian leather ... and are designed by Melo's bro, LiAngelo.
No word on if Melo knew the BBB drop was coming ... but either way, fans of the Balls have options now.
LaMelo Ball fans no longer have to shell out $400 for his signature kicks -- the Charlotte Hornets baller just revealed his first shoe with Puma ... and they come with a far-from Big Baller price tag!!
Remember, Melo left the family brand and signed a huge deal with PUMA last August ... and on Tuesday, announced his first collab with the brand will be out in December.
The kicks are called the MB.01s and look pretty dope -- with Nitro Foam in the midsole, a red colorway and wings on the side.
The sneakers also feature the words "Rare" on the sole, "Melo" on the heel and "1 of 1" on the tongue.
